Eight Breaks Chair
Design, Fabrication
2017

An experiment in break and fix woodworking.

Three pieces of wood were clamped to levers and intentionally broken at eight locations.

The broken joints were filled with epoxy resin, which keyed in to the fibers of the severed wood to form very strong joints.

Numerous pieces of wood were broken during the experimentation phase of trial and error.
